April 2nd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla will report its first quarter 2019 production and delivery figures in the next few days.

July 8th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Wall Street is obsessed with Tesla Model 3 production numbers. To some degree, this is understandable. But, according to one disruptive Wall Street analyst, Tesla's production numbers don't accurately reflect the bigger picture for Elon Musk


Investigations Into Tesla Fremont Factory — Investigative Journalism? Hit Pieces? Misinformed? Too Accurate?

May 12th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Journalistic integrity is a hot topic these days, and rightly so. A free press is absolutely necessary for democracy, technological and social progress, and other nice things. However, with press freedom come responsibilities: among other things, not to cherry pick facts to support a preconceived conclusion, and not to quote sources without revealing when they have a personal stake in an issue


What Holds Up Automakers From Catching Up To Tesla? Corporate Inertia

April 1st, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

A frequent theme of the legions of Tesla skeptics is the idea that, when the traditional automakers finally get serious about EVs, Tesla will be toast. However, while the auto giants, with their access to amazing amounts of capital and their enormous economies of scale, certainly have the ability to bury tiny Tesla, the reason that this scenario isn’t going to take place is that they don’t have the motivation to compete with the California carmaker

Nearly 500,000 Resumes & Applications For 2,500 Tesla Job Openings In 2017

March 17th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Getting a coveted job at Tesla isn't easy. Elon Musk once said, "if you're at Tesla, you're choosing to be at the equivalent of Special Forces. There's the regular Army, and that's fine, but if you are working at Tesla, you're choosing to step up your game." You'd think statements like this would keep job applicants away. Not so much


Gene Munster & Loup Ventures Expect Tesla Market Share To Triple To 1.5% Soon, Rise To 17% In 10 Years (USA)

March 16th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

One of the most famed Apple analysts, Gene Munster, has recently turned his attention to Tesla. Munster's firm, Loup Ventures, "surveyed 519 people in the U.S. regarding interest in buying a Tesla Model 3 ... [and] found a surprisingly high number (17%) of people would buy a Model 3 at $40,000. Even if this survey is off by 3x, the results still imply significant market share gains are in store for Tesla given their current U.S. unit market share is below 0.5%."

July 18th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

July is perhaps the biggest month in Tesla's history, with the first 30 29 Model 3 production vehicles set to be turned over to the first lucky owners on the 28th of the month. Until now, it was uncertain when the event would actually take place, and more than that, where it would be. The first production Model 3 was confirmed to be for Ira Ehrenpreis, but he gifted the prized vehicle to Elon Musk earlier this month, leaving 29 of the first 30 vehicles to be delivered at the event
